A birthday to remember

Puerto Viejo beach Costa RicaLet’s face it, after we’ve had a few more than we care to count, our birthdays do become a bit of a blur. So Jeanne Miner decided to make sure this her next birthday would really stand out…

“For my 50th birthday my husband and I went to Cost Rica for a week-long party. It was amazing! We zip lined high above the tree tops, went canyoning and rappelled down waterfalls! I have never done any of these things before and they made me feel like I could do anything.

The food was great everywhere we ate, from the small local cafes to nicer restaurants. The people were all so friendly. After giving a local a ride into town, we got invited over for dinner, and the family taught me how to make tortillas!

There were so many places to explore, from swimming holes with rope swings to steamy volcanic cracks in the rocks. I can not imagine I will ever have a birthday to top this one and it’s certainly one that I will remember for a very long time!”

Have you ever decided to celebrate your birthday somewhere special?
